The experienced ride is more about riding and enjoying the time with your horse. Even though they go fast, the horses are always under control which makes the riding even more fun! The beginners ride is a bit more about experiencing the rainforest, they do informative Eco talks throughout the track about the environment and it's development. Horses and staff... More

Today's ride with Prue will forever be a highlight of our trip to Cairns. Prue was warm, personable, friendly and fun. Her horses are incredibly well loved and cared for and her property is stunning. The 1.5 hour ride took our small group of four through different parts of the rainforest on calm, responsive and gentle horses who have been... More

We booked in with Prue for our honeymoon last month for a 2 hour ride. We were both beginners so our horses were picked to suit our experience which was good. The horses were very easy to ride, they didn't play up or run off or anything (which has happened to me in the past) Prue was really great, she... More

My horse-mad 5 year old was too young for Cape Trib Horserides so we came for a ride here with Prue. She was fantastic and the horses lovely. Thanks again for a great day.

I took my two daughters (age 8 and 6) to cow bay horse rides in August 2012. After speaking with Prue, the owner, about the girls comfort level with horses and what we were trying to achieve, she recommended a perfect option for us. For very good value my girls and I enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour guided trail ride... More

This was a really great way to spend the morning relaxing and enjoying the sights and sounds of the Daintree. Pru was an excellent instructor for my partner's first time on a horse. We even saw a couple of dingos who tried to take on Jackie the dog - who gallantly fought them off! All and all a grea exprience.

During our holiday to Cape Tribulation, we spent an amazing afternoon horse riding at Cow Bay. Prue is a fantastic host- although neither of us had any real riding experience, she showed us how to ride and was really supportive, while also giving us the confidence and freedom to do some faster trotting. Her tours are really informative, taking us... More

Our ride was very enjoyable, our horses sweet and cooperative, and the scenary lovely. The proprietor Prue has put a lot of heart and soul into clearing trails through this property for riders' enjoyment - a back breaking task I'm sure. It was lovely to amble through while she shared details of the area, its significance, and pointed out special... More
